Our 1 year old daughter has silent reflux, hypotonia as well as benign external hydrocephalus. We are currently weaning onto whole milk (we'll see if it works) and she is also on Prevacid 15mg per day.
To wean or not to wean...that is the questionSo Keira's GI said we could take her off Prevacid at one year. I don't know if I want to try it or not. She's tolerating whole milk great now but is that
due to the Prevacid or just that she's outgrowing her old issues? She
tolerates juices and even cinnamon (which KILLS me w/ my reflux even when on my reflux meds). I dunno....Is it wrong of me to just want to keep her
on it for a little while longer?

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
|Great news about the milk and cinnamon!
Not sure what you should do...maybe try decreasing her dose sllloooowwwwllly ? I probably am not in a place to give advuce because Sebastian's dose was upped when he was nearly a year old. All kids are different, I suppose. But yay for her progress!!
